Don’t let the name mislead you—Owner Ruth True is an expert when it comes to sustainability. Saddened by the pollution she encountered on a trip to China, True came home and opened über-eco-friendly Nube Green on the bottom floor of a historic Capitol Hill building. She stocks the place with nothing but American-made, recycled or upcycled, environmentally friendly goods. Take, for instance, cashmere blankets: Cashmere is not produced in this country, so the cozy throws at Nube Green are made from old sweaters and given a new purpose (hence “upcycled”). Not in the cuddling mood? Direct your attention to the sparkling reworked vintage jewelry.
